Hundreds allege Donald Trump doesn’t pay his bills

Hundreds claim Trump does not pay billsDonald Trump often portrays himself as a savior of the working class who will "protect your job." But a USA TODAY NETWORK analysis found he has been involved in more than 3,500 lawsuits over the past three decades – and a large number of those involve ordinary Americans, like the Friels, who say Trump or his companies have refused to pay them.

At least 60 lawsuits, along with hundreds of liens, judgments, and other government filings reviewed by the USA TODAY NETWORK, document people who have accused Trump and his businesses of failing to pay them for their work. Among them: a dishwasher in Florida. A glass company in New Jersey. A carpet company. A plumber. Painters. Forty-eight waiters. Dozens of bartenders and other hourly workers at his resorts and clubs, coast to coast. Real estate brokers who sold his properties. And, ironically, several law firms that once represented him in these suits and others.


David Duke defends Trump, blames Jews for judge criticism

David Duke blames Jews in mediaFormer Ku Klux Klan Grand Wizard David Duke defended Donald Trump on his radio show earlier this week from criticism of his comments about Judge Gonzalo Curiel, blaming "the Jews" in the media for propagating a long-running negative agenda against the presumptive Republican nominee.

The white supremacist radio host dropped the names of Fox News' Chris Wallace, along with Jake Tapper and Wolf Blitzer on CNN, who Duke said he had "exposed ... as a Jewish agent." Jeff Zucker, the current president of CNN Worldwide, is "another Jewish extremist," he remarked.

TVNL Comment:  Just another name of the dangerous, if mentally challenged supporters of Trump's racism.  Let's see if there's any comment from the GOP to discredit Duke's dumbass comments.



Obama endorses Clinton for president

President endorses ClintonPresident Obama on Thursday formally endorsed Hillary Clinton for president, calling on Democrats to rally around their presumptive nominee and put her in the White House this fall.

The president unveiled his endorsement in a video where he said of Clinton, "I don’t think there’s ever been someone so qualified to hold this office."

Obama’s endorsement, which has long been expected, could provide a shot in the arm to Clinton’s White House bid.


Clinton makes history, declares win in Democratic race

Clinton makes historyHillary Clinton marked her place in American history Tuesday night, declaring victory in the Democratic presidential race.

“Thanks to you, we’ve reached a milestone,” she told cheering supporters in Brooklyn, saying for the “first time in our nation’s history” a woman would lead a major-party ticket.

Clinton hit the magic number of 2,383 delegates needed to clinch the nomination on Monday night, as news organizations called the race for her based on support from superdelegates — party leaders and elected officials who have a vote at the convention and pledged to back her over Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders.

Dems accuse GOP of leaking PP documentsHouse Democrats are accusing GOP lawmakers of leaking confidential information from their Planned Parenthood probe to anti-abortion groups.

Iowa state senator is first elected official to leave Republican party over Trump

TrumpThe Iowa state senator David Johnson became the first elected official to leave the Republican party over Donald Trump on Tuesday, likening the presumptive nominee’s campaign to the rise of Adolf Hitler.

Johnson announced that he was changing his registration to No Party after Trump levelled accusations of bias at Judge Gonzalo Curiel, an American judge of Mexican heritage who allowed the release of some unflattering documents from a case against Trump University.


GOP Sen. Mark Kirk: 'I cannot and will not support my party's nominee'

Sen. Mark KirkIllinois Sen. Mark Kirk, the most endangered Senate Republican up for reelection this fall, said Tuesday that he will not back Donald Trump for president after a long line of controversial comments from the presumptive GOP nominee.

“As the presidential campaign progressed, I was hoping the rhetoric would tone down and reflect a campaign that was inclusive, thoughtful and principled,” Kirk said in a statement released Tuesday by his campaign. “While I oppose the Democratic nominee, Donald Trump's latest statements, in context with past attacks on Hispanics, women and the disabled like me, make it certain that I cannot and will not support my party's nominee for President regardless of the political impact on my candidacy or the Republican Party.”
